So, after daring to approach your most loving heart and to plunge my thirst in it, I received a promise from you of a garment made of three parts: these were to cover my soul in its nakedness, and to belong especially to my religious profession. They were peace, love and perseverance. Protected by this garment of salvation, I was confident that I would lack nothing but all would succeed and give you glory.
Saint Peter Canisius.
Please, Lord, may we also pray for “this garment of salvation,” made of peace, love and perseverance, and may we give you glory whether we succeed or not.
